Instructions 

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. After rinsing, shred your brussel sprouts. If you have a shredding blade for a food processor, you could use that as well or even a box grater. If you have none of those, no problem, just use a knife. Be sure to cut all of the whole sprouts into a similar size.

These are fantastic. The best I’ve ever made, my husband says...

Question tho - you say 350 in the blog but 375° in the instructions. Does it matter?

So glad to hear you enjoyed them!!! Thank you for catching my type! 375 is no big deal, it just will mean they make cook quicker. But, I cook everything at 350.

Brussel Sprouts and bacon make a perfect duet. I was not a fan of Brussel sprouts until I had it with bacon and that made a big impact. I'm going to try this recipe soon!
